HARBOR | Sofa
2 seater fabric sofa
Naoto Fukasawa continues his research on upside-down truncated cone shaped seats, and, for this project addresses B&B Italia’s need to explore the seating with arms. Two forms are ergonomically designed and developed to obtain a relaxing easy chair with a high back and headrest, and a conversation armchair with a low back. Both armchairs have a rotating base and visible metal zipper in the back that, as with the iconic Papilio series, allow to remove the covering, available in fabric or leather. To these seats are added a third form, a pouf on top of which a tray element can be supported, allowing complementary use as a table.
The Harbor series of armchairs and ottoman, presented with success in 2017, is enhanced by a new, equally contemporary and sinuous sofa. A range extention in the sign of design continuity, result of Fukasawa’s research into seating in the shape of upside-down truncated cone. The sofa reflects in particular the architectural, ergonomic shape of the conversation armchair, compounding its welcoming appeal by hosting two people. In fabric or leather, it has a visible metal zip on the rear of the backrest that acts as a decorative element and also allows the cover to be removed.
